In the following we introduce some pieces from Katalin Kádár’s series titled: ”Tears” which she created in 2014-2015. Click on the picture to enlarge.

These textile handkerchiefs are more than half a century old – some of them were my mother’s, others are from my childhood. They have been out of use since the existence of tissues, but I do not really want to get rid of them. They are at the bottom of my cupboard. What should I do with them? I will paint on them!

While I am painting, the following idea comes to my mind: these textile pieces were used at tragic moments of life. They have been washed by tears evoked by different emotions. They could tell several stories of sorrow, joy or being moved.
